Subject: Chomsky
About a 25 minute discussion with Professor Noam Chomsky, Prof. Chomsky not being in the studio, speaks from Boston.

Discussing states' "rights to defend themselves", but "not by force." He goes on to discuss what Israel, with support from the US, is doing.

Juan Gonzalez then asks Prof. Chomsky about the large civilian casualties in Israel's strike after the election of Obama then follows this question up about President Barack Hussein Obama calling for an opening of up Gaza, a removal of the blockade.

Amy Goodman then asks Prof. Chomsky about the timing of Israel's assault, stopping it just before Obama's inaugeration.

Amy Goodman then asks Prof. Chomsky about Obama's appointment of George Mitchell, in which Prof. Chomsky does not seem to have much hope.

Juan Gonzalez finally asks Prof. Chomsky about calls for divestment from Israel. Prof. Chomsky, in the last 30 seconds, draws parallels with divestment of South Africa which only came about after decades of education on the matter.

This talk is an interesting one that sticks with current issues, and so, has Chomsky content that many of his other speeches do not have. Worth listening to for Chomsky fans.
